Went here on one of two tours for the day, this place is completely different than your larger places. No real tour here, but a fun experience as you get to taste some of what they make. Great back...

Don't let the grounds or first impression fool you. From a good tasting, craft bourbon perspective, the best stop we've had on the Bourbon Trail. This is not an ambience or tour the grounds...

Incredible bourbon(and other spirits) and incredible staff. Genuinely small batch, craft distilling happens here. We’ve been in Kentucky 2 weeks with the sole idea of finding the best bourbons and taking some home with us. More than half our allotment is now Glenn’s Creek(which is because we went back a second time to get all we could since we loved it so much). It is the best bourbon we’ve had, completely unique and wonderful. We loved the tasting experience, nothing fancy but it would seem that’s because they’re actually focused on making really great spirits instead of a tourist destination. They don’t bottle the bourbon until it is just right and you can tell. If you’re a real bourbon lover, ask them to tell you about the Premium line. The dregs(last little bit that can’t quite be bottled) from 15-20 barrels of their already incredible bourbon, combined into a single barrel and aged an additional couple of years. We’re from Oregon and we’re planning to come back just to get more Premium bottles. Thanks, Dave, for making great bourbon!
It was a wonderful experience to listen to Dave's storytelling and learn all about his passion for distilling fine spirits and his love for the former Old Crow distillery. He is quite a character and a master a spinning a tale. It makes the experience top notch. The spirits are amazing. Some of the best we tasted during our 4 days on the Bourbon Trail. Don't pass up this one!
What a great experience. It is so refreshing to see Glenns Creek Distillery bring the Old Crow Distillery back to life. The last time my brother and I drove by this place was going to be demolished, but thanks to Glenns Creek they are saving a part of Kentucky bourbon history. I am so happy that I stopped by a bought a bottle of the Glenns Creek whiskey, and got to see the place. Well worth the visit.
Our last stop of the day and ….Surprise !!!! Wow ! Glenn’s Creek does not disappoint! The Bourbon is amazing! Vicky took great care of us even though it was almost the end of the day ! The Rye is great. Actually we bought a bottle of everything we tasted because we cannot get their Spirits at home. We cannot wait to share them ! Glenn’s Creek gets a big thumbs up !
We had such a wonderful experience yesterday! The bourbon tasted amazing but the best part was the personal attention we received! If you really want to experience a real bourbon distillery Glenn's Creek is an amazing place to visit.
